Adam Selman-the man behind Rihanna’s edgy wardrobe
It’s slowly becoming the next big thing in the fashion industry. For those of you who haven’t heard about the young “out of an 80’s movies” designer, pay attention. The man has a moustache and he knows how to use it! Obviously, with a fashion sense.
He launched his first eponymous collection early in September in NYFW and made some waves!
Before telling you more about his latest collection which I love, let’s have a little history lesson, about Mr Selman ofc!
Texan Adam Selman
Well digging about some info about the not so notorious designer I found out that he struggled a bit before getting to know Riri! The Texan Adam Selman was a creative human being at a young age and he went to church almost every day! Who knew that was possible! In 2000 he left that aside and moved to NY to study design at Pratt Institute.
After doing props for movies he began working with the designer Zaldy on costumes for artists like Lady Gaga. He also created stage outfits for Britney Spears, Michael Jackson and the Scissor Sisters, and after that the path for success was clear and straight. Why? Because Rihanna loved him so much that he was her right-hand style man.
And Mr. Selman loved her too, because “her insane body was perfect to make clothes for.” Totally Agree.
Remember that 216,000 Swarovski Crystals dress worn by Riri at CFDA’s this past spring?
For the past two seasons, the designer created amazing looks that women who aren’t looking like Rihanna, could wear and feel confident.
For his Fall/Winter 2014 collection the designer took India as an inspiration.
Blue and black prints and different shapes are more than you can imagine. A very cool and colorful cow, also inspired by the Hindi Holi dye festival, seed prints, saris, quilted coats and a 3-way-stocking-cap.
Adam Selman S/S 2015 collection
His true skills came along with his spring summer 2015 80’s inspired collection that showed his inner voice, his talent, his creation in a true way.
His vision is simple: women are meant to wear dresses and sweatshirts and pearls! Love it! Even more, if you can give me a nostalgic look that reminds me the electronic sound of a past era.
Selman says that he ”tried to take that inspiration of the nostalgic look of the eighties and seventies and transform it into the modern girl”
